Impulse Control Disorders

The brain’s frontal lobes regulate attention and expression of emotion and body movement. A tendency toward impulsive behavior results from insufficient activity, especially in the right frontal lobe, or from poor pathway connections between the frontal lobe and other brain structures. Impulsive behavior can play a role in disorders such as addictions, ADHD, closed head trauma, and eating disorders. Neurofeedback can change activity levels of brain areas and/or reestablish the integrity of connections. In addition, cognitive-behavioral therapy and heart rate variability biofeedback can help impulse control disorders.
